- runs in more adverse conditions than pad plungers
- can navigate tubing irregularities due to flex in o.d.
- can be utilized as a tool to “clean up” a well and later convert to a pad plunger application

- 3 1/2"
The Ultraseal Plunger has a HNBR rubber Ultra Seal attached to the body of the plunger between interlocking tabs under the pads. The interlocking pads serve as a protector to the Ultra Seal which decreases gas slippage under the pads. This results in less fluid "fallback" during the plunger cycle to the surface, which allows the plunger to make a run on less gas pressure. Offered in single or dual pad design.
Designed to fall at high speeds, similar to a PaceMaker, but does not require as much flow time at surface to separate a secondary piece. This tool is designed as an intermediate step between PaceMaker candidate wells and Conventional Plunger candidiate wells. The Rapid Drop Plunger requires no additional equipment on surface to adapt the well for this application and can run in wells with existing subsurface equipment. These plungers are built with heat treated steel. It is recommended that the Bottom Hole Spring have a spring rate of at least 300lbs per inch to handle dry landings.
